Glamour

What will happen when all the glamour fades away?
When you look around and find yourself alone on an unfamiliar road.

What will happen when all the rawness you weren’t allowing to show comes forward,
And knocks you off your track?

What will happen when you realize that looks aren’t everything?
And that you can’t keep going by pointing your finger at others?

What will happen when you realize gossip never got you anywhere?
And all the stories you wasted your time with never pushed you forward?

What will happen when you realize you’ve pushed the carers away?
And the fakers have already made a run for it at the first signs of trouble?

Would you be able to handle the masks everyone wore around you?
Would you be able to handle the truth?
And the impact of your hurtful words?

Would you be able to handle the loneliness?
When you find out that while you’ve been busy with everyone’s gossip,
You didn’t appreciate all the gifts that were sent your way.

  1. This poem is spot on and you’ve said it best.

    Humans don’t appreciate what is given to them or that someone who cares about them.
    Everything to the few humans on this planet, they consume themselves with materialistic nonsense.

      4. There has been a revolution so there has been tons of strikes and the highways were closed before.
        People have been protesting for their rights for a month now.

      5. Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry to hear of what is happening. Well, the people need to be heard and our leaders need to listen. Otherwise, nothing can’t be resolved.

        Be safe out there. Some protesters tend to get a little crazy.

      6. So far protestors are super peaceful it’s the government who is responding with violence. If you google lebanese revolution you’d see so many heartwarming photos and events which were happening on the street. Prayers that the people get what they want ๐Ÿ™

      7. I’ve just be reading the news on Google.
        I’m so sorry for what your country is going through. Every government seems to want and instigate violence as oppose to resolving a solution for both parties.

        Prayers as well on my end.
